Wednesday 15 February 2012: Ballad
So, naturally, I joined the SPL. I have a poet's soul...and they tweeted yesterday's post which goes some way to explaining the crazy viewing numbers.
Thought I'd get my head into something from Mr L.Cohen.
Early sample -
My lady was found mutilated
in a Mountain Street boarding house.
My lady was a tall slender love,
like one of Tennyson's girls,
and you always imagined her erect on a throughbred
in someone's private forest.
But there she was,
naked on an old bed, knife slashes
across her breasts, legs badly cut up;
Dead two days.
And they'd washed off the heart
Valentine's day is well and truly over people.
